Doodle Week!

Just been doodling this week using 4 black pens. Then added background colour to the bird. Handy to carry about for a spare 5mins here and there. Not sure what to journal on the circles yet. The circles were inspired from another blog I saw a few months ago but can't remember which one sorry.

Banish your Skeletons

Had a lovely day on Sunday Art Journaling at AFTH the challenge being Skeletons and monsters. I thought I was going to struggle as I don't do halloween and the stamps were on that theme. Just used the cobweb and a very small skeleton disappearing of the page. Everyone laughed at my spider which looked a bit like a cow on Sunday but I've plumped it up as it has eaten all the flies, and hopefully now it looks, yes I know nothing like a spider still. I now have to clean my act up! Wonder how long I will be able to keep it up? I'm not telling what's in the secret pocket though!

I have allowed myself some time this last fortnight to journal.

Bit of a mixed bag really as its been challenging this week

BUT I have been helped by journalling.

Looking forward to my AFTH fix.

The colours have photographed a little dark for some reason.

What's that in my hand?

I bet you can't guess until I say I've spent a lovely afternoon in my garden yesterday doing a bit of weeding and pruning. Have you got it yet? Clue picture below.....

The background was created using Altered Original Spray ink (now renamed Dylusions)Granite mixed with Blonde Moments pearl powder Festive Candy. Mixing your own is much better than ready prepared ones because you can mix so many combinations for your money. A hear that some new colours and other new products are being launched at next weeks GNPS next weekend.

Bank Holiday Monday was also spent in the garden without extras! The background was done at the last Sunday Journaling class at AFTH and finished on 24th August with the journaling added last Monday. It's good to have a selection of backgrounds prepared so you can journal at will.
